We have been to Auschwitz. Why would someone go to Auschwitz? It is a historical place – ‘the Auschwitz lie’ or ‘a flyspeck in German history’ or ‘a memorial for industrial mass murder’?

I went with a group to attend the 3rd congregation Israel congress in Berlin between 8.11-10.11.2018.

The city of Leipzig invited residents on the 22th of April into the Ariowitschhaus to live relations with people and institutions of Israel, especially with the partner city Herzliya.

During this church service Simon Rau preached about the characteristic of the love of god in the Old Testament (the Tenach) as well as in the New Testament (HaBrit HaChadasha).

A part of our association hold the church service on the 10/21/2018 at the Andreas church.

In February Maria Hoffmann and Kerstin Kluge have been in Israel. They witnessed how Rick and Dafna Wienecke presented to different kind of groups “Fountain of Tears” in Arad.

At the end of September we celebrated the fest of tabernacles outside of Leipzig in Bennewitz.

On January 17, 2018 along with the pavilion of hope and the Israel circle of the Elim congregation we spoke about important prayer concerns for Israel and put them before God.

Prayer from the church of Andreas and the Elim congregation got together in the international prayer room of the pavilion on the 9/5/2018 to pray for Israel.

From November 11 to November 17 I travelled to Israel. I spent some very busy days there.

Manfred was very happy to participate in the March of the Nations 2018 in Jerusalem. The TOS Tübingen and Leipzig had organized this big event, that took place one day after the opening of the American embassy in Jerusalem on the 15th of May.
